Finalist for LABC Building Excellence Award, Best Individual Dwelling 2013
Working in Crackington Haven, architects at The Bazeley Partnership designed this replacement 5-bedroomed dwelling to sit on a challenging site located on the side of a steep coastal valley in North Cornwall. The owners were inspired by Californian design ideas and wanted to bring some of these concepts into this building.
The first floor features a rooflight that spans across the length of the main open plan living space drawing in light, whilst the large floor to ceiling windows frame the views out across the bay. The low positioning from the roadside view of the property gives the impression of a smaller building which helps to site the home well in the context of other local properties.
